DO IT!


Finally, I e-mailed Koch about the spam issue, on Sat, Oct 30, 2010:

Please, stop e-mailing me this junk. These e-mails are Spam. Please drop me from your e-mail list, stop sending me junk e-mails, and leave me alone. Thank you.


Koch's reply was e-mailed to me 90 minutes later:

It's a simple process to stop receiving these e-mails...
Log in to your account, change your e-mail address of record.
I cannot do it for you. If you cannot do it, I guess we are at an impasse.

Didn't I already give you these instructions?


I followed Koch's instructions: "Log in to your account, change your e-mail address of record."

EIGHT HOURS LATER - at my highly-prized "back-up" e-mail in-box:

recent LSP spam #3 -- emailed to Monte's other Inbox: Account Activated

subject: Account Activated

Welcome to the pub...



p.s.: I have never been on Lost Sailors Pub... never blogged, never hung out, and frankly, before now, I've never mentioned this. I joined when LSP was 1st launching. That was when Koch posted his very first (of many, many) "free sign-up" notice on The Archive's GD forum. My Bad for doing that. Thank goodness I'm enjoying some 5-star MMJ right now, and I'm smoking a bowl.

Californians, be sure to legalize marijuana. Schwag should be illegal.

another one of Koch's LSP invitations

peace

p.s.: I should mention, notice how Koch is running Ads over at LSP (revenue generation for himself?), while I'm working 3 years non-stop on here at The Archive -- For Free: sharing my tapes, providing tech-support, advocating progressively for peace and Net Neutrality, and being a hippie digital archivist.
